Indian Head 1 oz Silver Round

What is incuse? The Incuse Indian Head design silver rounds are quite unique in how they are designed. Most coins are designed in raised 'relief,' which means that as you run a finger across the design you can feel the letters, numbers, and other design elements 'poking out' at you. Incuse relief is just the opposite - the design features are sunken into the coin so that the area around the design elements - the field - is the highest part of the design. Creating designs like this is challenging for not only the artist who sculpts the design, but also for the mint in that their thinking has to be reversed in making sure a quality piece is put out. Think of it as having to write backwards. Incuse Indian Head designs Beginning in 1907 the coinage of the United States went through a drastic reform, inspired by President Theodore Roosevelt. He gathered artists together who could sculpt his 'distinctively American' Native American designs into coins we would spend. One such artist was Boston native Bela Lyon Pratt, who was hired to create the designs for the $2.50 and $5.00 'Indian' gold coins. The designs were a huge departure from typical coin designs in that the entire 'portrait' sat below the level of the negative space in the design, or the 'field.' Pratt's design was considered attractive by many, but collecting interest did not rise significantly until after the repeal of the gold recall in 1974. This specially crafted Indian Head design 1 oz. silver round was created by the Highland Mint with precise quality to honor Pratt's out-of-the-box thinking and design skills. The Highland Mint Serving collectors since the early 1980s, the Highland Mint is a full-service mint located in Melbourne, Florida. They have produced hundreds of minted products and also carry licenses for a number of sports and other entities to produce and distribute products bearing their branding.
